The AIRCLAIR project objective is to design, develop, and make available prototypes of a new sensor capable of continuously analyzing the quality of fuel at the engine inlet, and instantly modifying the engine settings (electronic injection).
The goal is to continually optimize engine performance based on the actual fuel quality: heavy fuel oil, natural gas, gas recovery, for a gain of 5% or more in consumption, depending on the quality of the fuel, whilst remaining within pollutant emission limits.
